Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl place figs and sprinkle with baking soda. Pour the boiling water over the figs and soak for 1 hour.
  2. Drain figs and rinse thoroughly with cold water. In a large Dutch oven combine the sugar and the 4 cups of water; bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the figs and lemon slices to the syrup in the Dutch oven and cook for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  4. Spoon figs into hot, sterilized jars and spoon syrup over figs, leaving 1/2 inch of head space. Top jars with lids and screw bands on tightly. Process for 10 minutes in a hot water bath.

Very easy recipe with simple ingredients. The fig preserves are tasty, however they did not "set" and are very runny. Maybe they are not suppose to, but I prefer my fig preserves thicker.

Very good!!! Easy, and just like my mother used to make. Fig preserves are supposed to be in liquid. So this was just what I wanted. Thanks for sharing.
